(we hope to be finishing the grading of C6 soon)

if you are missing scores for any of these (probably because you didnt, come to AMNESTY hour after the exam tomorrow to recoup points

for today's class, do the wave addition of a wave of frequency 15 Hz and a wave of frequency 20 Hz and put the result in your lab book, since it's the first question of part 3A...
see email for suggestion on how  to do this on your calculator
 
 
bring your musical instrument to class today

also, i will used about 15 minutes of class time today, so i would strongly suggest that you have  all checks through part 6 before coming to class today

are the readings  redundant? if so, which is better?

be able to relate the precal math to the sounds we heard in class this morning
 
 
 
in-class
presentation


find the speed of the  2 standing wave harmonics in 14(61), BUT the method for finding the speed of the fundamental must be different from the method you use to find the speed of the second harmonic
(of course, to be precise, I mean find the speed of the  2 traveling waves that compose the standing wave, because the standing wave itself has no speed)
